Quarter = Centennial Meeting of 
Collegiate Alumnae. 

A brief account of the Quarter-Cen- 
tennial meeting of the Association of Col- 
legiate Alunmae, and especially of the 
afternoon spent at Wellesley, may be of 
interest to Wellesley students and Alum- 
nae. This is the twenty-fifth anniversary 
of the Association, and as it was founded 
in Boston and incorporated under the 
laws of Massachusetts, the annual meeting 
of the Association was held in Boston, 
November 5th to 9th, by invitation of the 
Boston Branch. Every effort was made 
to make the occasion a memorable one in 
the history of the Association, and the 
program included speeches of prominence 
and distinction from different sections of 
the country. The meetings open to the 
public were held on Tuesday evening, 
Wednesday evening and Friday evening. 
President Hazard made an address of 
welcome at the opening meeting on Tues- 
day evening, held at the Boston Public 

On Monday evening, November 4, the 
New England Women's Club received the 
resident and visiting members of the As- 
sociation at the Grundmann Studios, 
Clarendon street. On Tuesday afternoon, 
the Association and its guests were enter- 
tained by the College Club of Boston at 
the Club House, from four to six o'clock. 
Wednesday morning, there were excur- 
sions to places of historical interest around 
Boston and Concord, and visits to the In- 
stitute of Technology, Boston University, 
Simmons College, the Museum of Fine 
Arts and the Boston Public Library. 
Thursday afternoon the Boston Branch 
entertained the members in Cambridge. 
A special car started from the Public Li- 
brary, going directly to the Craigie House, 
where the members were received by in- 
vitation of Miss Alice M. Longfellow. A 
visit was then made to the Harvard Col- 
lege Library, and to the Harvard Observa- 
tory, where women have special opportu- 
nities for advanced work. By invitation 
of the authorities of Radcliffe College, the 
members visited the halls of residence, 
Bertram Hall and Grace Hopkinson Eliot 
Hall, from 4.30 to 5.30, and met at Agas- 
siz House for supper at 6 o'clock. 

On Friday afternoon the Association 
visited Wellesley College. The delega- 
tion was met at the station, and conducted 
through the college grounds in barges. 
All of the houses on the campus were open, 
and special stops were made at the Whitin 
Observatory, the Houghton Memorial 
Chapel, Billings Hall and the Art Build- 

ing. They reached College Hall about four 
o'clock, and were received in the Brown- 
ing room by President Hazard, Mrs. 
Durant and Miss Pendieton. Refresh- 
ments were served in Center and in the 
Faculty Parlor. Late in the afternoon a 
special train carried the delegation back 
to Boston. 

On Friday evening, after the session at 
the Hotel Somerset, a reception was given 
by the Boston Branch to the visiting mem- 
bers and guests, and on Saturday, at i 
P.M., the Boston Branch entertained the 
visitors at a luncheon served at the Hotel 

Christian Association Meeting. 

At the meeting of the Christian Asso- 
ciation, Thursday, November 7, several 
of the people who went to Silver Bay gave 
different phases of the message of the 
conference. The first to speak, after Miss 
Shonk, the leader, was Miss Love. She 
brought out very clearly that the spirit of 
Silver Bay is a reality, characterized by 
cheerfulness, unselfishness, sincerity and 
willingness to help others, as well as by the 
good-fr arising from, the common 

interest and purpose. Then Miss Steven- 
son spoke of the out-door life, of the many 
opportunities for boating or walking, of 
the different sports, such as we have here, 
and finally of College Day, when all the 
girls come together socially, and show by 
songs and costumes which is their Alma 
Mater. Miss McCarroll next told us 
something about missions, and Miss 
Cushman reminded us that the difficulties 
which we meet at Silver Bay or anywhere 
are going to make us stronger, better 
women. Another of the benefits of the 
Conference was brought out by Miss An- 
na Brown, when she spoke of the inspira- 
tion and help it brings to a girl to see, know 
and talk to the leaders at Silver Bay and 
the girls from other delegations. Then 
Miss Burns told us of the meetings there, 
and the attitude of the girls toward these; 
how that each girl went, not from a sense 
of duty, but because she wished to hear 
the special message which each meeting 
was sure to bring. The next speaker was 
Miss Wallower, who gave the message 
which Bible study brought to her. The 
last message of the evening was given by 
Miss Pfeiffer in answer to questions which 
might arise in the girls' minds as to the 
possibility of so large a delegation's being 
united in purpose. The key to the solu- 
tion is prayer. It was in all and through 
all, in play as well as work, in the contests, 
in the committee meetings, in the Bible 
classes, and in the platform meetings. 

The Conference brings out very forcibly 
the joy of loving service, and we hope that 
those who have not had the privilege of 
being there, will feel that no life is so truly 
happy as that which is consecrated to the 
service of Jesus Christ. 


Although we all know that Wellesley is 
a place where "no matter what you wear, 
you'll always find someone else wearing 
the same thing," we must admit that some 
fashions held striking sway at the Barn 
Saturday night. Overalls were the even- 
ing dress for gentlemen, not quite correct 
unless broad straw hats were added. 
Some of the ultrafashionable smoked corn- 
cob pipes, and the more gallant carried 
hoes. Coquettish, blushing ladies acted 
quite unconscious of their two-button kid 
gloves, graceful veils and elegant bows, 
and chatted kindly with ladies in gingham 
aprons. Black mammies and their "ole 
men" romped gleefully through the as- 
sembly of fashion; pert boys flirted with 
shy little girls; and those who were hope- 
lessly out of fashion made note of the 
others' gay costumes. 

A hurdy gurdy played for the dancers 
to bump and romp through the hall. 
Overhead apples and doughnuts hung 
within reach of the ladies' hands and gen- 
tlemen's mouths, — little girls could run 
to the platform and tables to find big heaps 
of them. Distinguished guests watched 
the dancing; Tweedledum and Tweedle- 
dee, always ready to quarrel, and Sis 
Hopkins in blithe humor. Is it any won- 
der that the farmer lads and lassies had a 
jolly time? 


The Consumers' League wishes to state 
in answer to the many questions that have 
been asked, that the reason we did not 
have a table on Pay Day is not owing to 
our being in a dead, dying, or comatose 
state, but because we decided not to have 
the annual canvass for new members until 
January this year. Our main object is 
not to have a large membership who have 
joined and paid their quarters just to get 
rid of the canvasser. We want every girl 
in college to belong to the league because 
she realizes so clearly what it stands for 
that she can't stay out of it. We don't 
ask for you to decide now; but we do ask 
every Wellesley girl who means anything 
when she says, " Non ministrari, sed min- 
istrare," to look with seeing eyes at the 
girls and the little messenger boys, and 
cash girls who are ministering to us in the 
stores, and especially during the coming 
"holiday rush," as it is called. Try 
and put yourself in their place so that 
when you are asked to join the league after 
Christmas you can at least be ready to 
answer thoughtfully and intelligently 
whether you want to belong or not.

As we all know, (and many of us to our 
sorrow,) that college girls are continually- 
being criticized, either directly or vaguely, 
sometimes in fun and often in all serious- 
ness, it may be interesting to trace why 
it is so. One can hardly go anywhere 
without hearing, "Why you're a college 
girl, can't you do that!" — "that" in- 
cluding innumerable things, anything. 
in fact, from cooking a dinner to playing 

When the college girl goes home the 
family expect wide, accurate and imme- 
diate information upon almost any subject; 
her friends expect her to be able to carry 
out a dozen practical projects with en- 
thusiasm and efficiency, and others stand 
ready to pass judgment upon her man- 
ners and general deportment. So much is 
expected of her that she feels as if she 
were in a "class by herself," and had a 
difficult standard to maintain, and, what 
is more, one that is not of her own choosing. 
A college education is a great opportunity, 
but it cannot, and ought not to be ex- 
pected to do everything. 

The other day two girls, unmistakably 
college girls, were coming out from Boston.

One boarded the train, dashed ahead of 
the other, and elbowed her way to the 
front of the car. Her friend had been 
crowded into the car behind, and presently 
the passengers in both carriages were 
edified to hear Xo. i shriek back to Xo. 2, 
(back through the entire length of one car 
to the next) "Here Maude, here's a seat!" 
One gentleman turned to another: "How 
can the college permit such things?" he 
said in disgust. 

The gentleman had a right to be dis- 
gusted but he ought not to have con- 
sidered the college responsible. The col- 
lege does not teach deportment, either for 
train, street or parlor — the individual is 
responsible for that, although, alas, the 
reprehensible conduct of one girl will re- 
flect discredit upon the whole college. 
The truth of the matter is that the college 
should not be held accountable for every 
deficiency of its thousand members, and 
neither should each girl feel it necessary 
to proclaim herself a fully developed and 
thoroughly educated woman at the end of 
her four years' course. Xot that we do 
this consciously, or realize that by a thou- 
sand little turns and tricks that we are 
continually making evident that we are 
"college girls," and therefore have a 
right to be exempt from many demands, 
and have a claim to peculiar privileges.

We do do this, and this is why so much is 
expected of us that we cannot fulfil. 
It is better to be oneself, as an individual 
than a "college girl." The girl who is 
modest, willing to listen to others and in- 
terested in their interests, who says by her 
attitude, if not by words — "College has 
but shown me how little I know and how 
much there is to learn;" the girl who 
realizes that her faults and virtues 
are as much, and even more, the result 
of her own character and home-training — 
such girl neither brings discredit to her 
college, nor finds herself overwhelmed by 
the expectations of the world.

were the order of the evening. 

On Saturday evening, November 2, at T. Z. E. House, was 
held the first meeting of the Deutsche Verein. A long table 
was set in the center of the room and around it sat the guests of 
honor, Mrs. Miinsterberg and her two daughters and niece, 
the .Misses Miinsterberg, a few members of tne Faculty and a 
few fortunate students. The rest of the Association sat around 
the room, and everybody ate sausages. Miss Dorothy Pope, 
president of the organization, gave tne welcoming address, set- 
ting forth the ideals of the Verein, asking for co-operation — and 
urging everybody to pay their dues. Miss Frida Semler then 
toasted The Guests, .braulein Muller began her speech by 
saying that she would speak on a subject that lay very near to 
all of us, and one that might pursue some of us into our deepest 
dreams — the German bausage. Fraulein Muller showed 
what a great part it had played in the affairs of Germany, and 
how it permeates German proverbs. Mrs. Miinsterberg spoke 
on the hospitality of the Deutsche Verein and hoped that some 
day it might ha\ e a club house of its own. Then she toasted 
the "Club House." Fraulein Miilltr replied that we cannot 
have a club house until we have ten or twenty thousand dol- 
lars. Mrs. Miinsterberg then toasted "The Man who will give us 
the Twenty Thousand Dollars." The meeting closed with the 
singing of German songs. 

On Monday, November 4, from 2 to 5 P.M., at the Barn, oc- 
curred the 1909 Class Social. It was the usual meeting, greeting

iGt I have not read a hundred and seventy Freshman letters deal- 
ing with the first weeks at Wellesley without some food for 
thought; and this thought seems to me to concern the whole 
college, the upperclassmen in especial. First among those mani- 
fold "first impressions" of Wellesley comes a strong and en- 
thusiastic sense of the cordial, kindly, democratic spirit of the 
place. Here one gladly recognizes the perfect justice of the 
judgment, and feels that never while she stays in Wellesley will 
the Freshman feel her first enthusiasm misplaced. But side by 
side with this comes another impression, the impression of a 
few older, more thoughtful girls, who question whether the 
whole-hearted Freshman enjoyment of fudge and Welsh rarebit 
and "dream sandwiches" is, after all the thing for which they 
have come to college. When, they ask, shall they find the hearty 
interest in new ideas which brought them here ? And here 
one stops to question. When will those girls, who have come to 
Wellesley for the real purpose for which colleges were founded, 
find that genuine zeal for new thoughts, that ardent discussion 
of ideas of every sort, for which they seek' Will they ever find 
it among the mass of upperclassmen who maintain that it is out 
of place to discuss "work" outside the class room? Is this tra- 
dition a worthy one for a college community to hand down to 
Freshmen? More marked, however, and more general, is an- 
other impression. There prevails among at least eighty-five 
Freshmen, and presumably among more than three hundred, a 
wholesome respect for the Student Government Association and 
its ideals. And here one must pause for serious thought. How 
long will this respect last, when at any hour of the day in College 
Hall, Freshmen may hear sudden outbursts of laughter and loud 
talking, when in the midst of a lecture, Seniors in cap and gown 
pass the open door with laughter that disturbs a Freshman 
English class? How long will this respect last, when as Sopho- 
mores, newly come to a Dormitory, they find no real regard for 
the quiet of studious girls during recitation periods, and not al- 
ways perfect regard during the evening quiet hours? Is it 
right that even a Freshman in the village should be forced to say, 
"The only quiet time is between seven-thirty and nine-thirty in 
the evening, and it is very hard to study at any other time." 
Can the work for six courses be satisfactorily done between 
seven-thirty and nine-thirty in the evening? I do not think so. 
How can this sentiment, aroused by the first meeting of the 
Student Government Association, be turned into a real, rea- 
sonable, controlling sense of personal responsibility in the new 
members of the college? In no way that I know save by the 
turning of sentiment into a vital sense of personal responsibility 
in the whole student body. The future of the college lies in the 
impressionable spirit of the Freshman class; that spirit is awake, 
eager to go forward upon a new way; — and it is the upperclass- 
men who will inevitably determine the direction it will take, for 
good or ill. Agnes F. Perkins. 


In three classes that I have been in this week the noise in the 
corridors has been so disturbing that it was necessary for some 
girl to step outside and give the familiar warning — sh-sh-sh. 

All of us know and feel what a good and grand thing our 
Student Government is, and all of us respect what it stands for 
here at Wellesley; and we are all most anxious not to give any- 
one the chance to criticize her in the slightest degree. Now it 
seems to me that such a disturbance is a serious matter, and I 
know that all the girls in the classes must have felt as I did, — 
most uncomfortable. There is no danger of a decreasing faith 
on our own part towards Student Government, for we all know 
the true and loyal spirit towards her; but might there not be in 
the case of the Faculty, who can only judge by what they see, 
and not by what they feel? 

Each year girls give up a great deal in serving Student Gov- 
ernment, and can't we all feel a little of their responsibility and 
help them, by keeping the halls perfectly quiet during recitation 
time? 1 910. 


The old saying is wise, "Children are to be seen, not heard." 
I am a child in this country and am seen everywhere I go. 
"Not to be heard" is quite a question here, since whether I 
speak or not I am heard. 

If the article in the Boston Herald two weeks ago Monday, 
i. e. October 21, has given any offence to my fellow students, or 
those who are interested in the college, I ask them to reconsider 
and to do me justice to believe that I have been misrepresented 
in the interview. I am a learner here, not an adviser, and 
should not presume to express myself with conviction on the 
subjects included in the article in question. F. Y. Tsao. 


The word I have heard most since coming to Wellesley has 
been "crush," but in spite of its popularity I have been unable

to find a better definition of it than that it is a vague feeling of 
longing and admiration for some one, which may be expressed 
either by silent adoration, or by profuse and lavish gifts. It 
seems to be quite the proper thing for every Freshman to have a 
"crush" on an upperclassman, for several Sophomores have told 
me with due pride about their experiences last year, and seem 
heartily to pity those who are not following their example. ( 

The most peculiar part of it is that though a girl may even 
boast about her former "crushes," she is extremely sensitive 
to any remarks during her infatuated period. 

Psychologically I cannot account for this strange condition 
unless it is an inherited instinct from the ancient hero-worship. 
It seems almost a crime to contaminate the beauty and sim- 
plicity of friendship by such a farce, and I hope that the Class 
of 191 1 will have the moral courage to resist any such repugnant 
tendency. Elizabeth Hubbard, iqii.

A cablegram recently received announces the death at Madura. 
India, of Miss Bessie Browning Noyes, sister of Rev. Charles L. 
Noyes, pastor of the Winter Hill Congregational Church of 
Somerville. Miss Noyes was, with her sister, Miss Mary Noyes, 
in charge of a girls' high and normal school conducted by the 
American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions. She 
had many friends in this city and vicinity, all of whom were in- 
terested in the great work which she was aiding and who will 
learn of her death with many regrets. A month ago Miss 
Noyes was stricken with fever, and it is presumed her death re- 
sulted from this attack. No details have as yet been received. 
Miss Noyes was the daughter of Rev. J. T. Noyes, who with 
his wife, was serving at the time of her birth as a missionary 
at Madura, and who were valued workers of many years' serv- 
ice. She was born July 20, i860, and graduated at Wellesley 
College, 1882. After leaving college she was for a year a 
teacher in the South, under the American Missionary Associa- 
tion. After that she went back to Madura and, with her sister 
took charge of the Madura Girls' Normal School. Miss Noyes 
had two furloughs, the last of which ended when she returned to 
her work a year ago. (From the Boston Transcript.')
